This road provides a new, alternative, and more authentic view of Iceland. The Westfjords Way is, as the name suggests, a long and winding tour of the Westfjords of Iceland. Newly constructed to attract tourism to this off-the-beaten-track area of the country, the Westfjords Way is dotted with small Icelandic towns, bed and breakfasts, and unbelievable views. Activities of all kinds can be found here, excellent for anyone seeking active adventures, fun parks, or day tours of any kind.
